Remember the Bamboo phone earlier this month? Well, that was a concept. Here’s a real, “purchasable” one, called the Eco-Media Player from Trevor Baylis. This thing has a hand crank that provides 40 minutes of playtime with each full minute of cranking. If you are totally against any type of manual labor, you can also charge the Eco-Media Player through USB. The environment friendly player features:

* 1.8″ color LCD display
* 2GB
* 24-bit digital audio processing
* Audio support: mp3, wma, asf, wav, and ogg
* Video support: asv (in comes with a conversion software to convert your video files)
* Photo viewer: jpeg, bmp, and gif
* FM radio
* Stereo 3.5mm headphone jack
* SD card slot
* 20 hours of music/10 hours of video playback on a full charge
* USB 2.0; for easy ‘drag and drop’ file transferring

If that wasn’t enough for you, the Eco-Media Player can also charge your cell phone. Simply connect your phone to the player and begin cranking. It can also act as a flash light with its “SUPER-Bright Torch,” LED technology. This makes the Eco-Media player a great camping tool.


The 2GB Eco-Media Player costs $199.99 USD at Real Goods.
